Plant of the Week: Madison Jasmine

Vines add an impactful finishing touch to any landscape, by providing color, texture and vertical interest. Vines are ideal for hiding eyesores, providing privacy, softening the monotony of plain fencing and transforming a plain arbor or pergola into a focal point of your garden. They are also the perfect choice in tight spaces since they grow vertically. Most require low maintenance and often draw the attention of colorful butterflies and delightful little hummingbirds.

Plant of the Week: Stella d'Oro Daylilies

One of the easiest-to-grow plants is the daylily. Daylilies (Hemerocallis) are blooming perennials available in an amazing variety of colors and sizes. The name Hemerocallis comes from the Greek language and means 'beauty for a day' -- hence we get daylily since each flower only lasts for 1 day. Daylilies are often referred to as the perfect perennial for lots reasons. Not only do they come in a variety of colors and sizes, but they also survive in a wide range of climates, often with very little care.
